This message should help:

Recently a `--search-lib-files-dir' option was added to the compiler to
set a bunch of `--blah-dir' options at once, but I don't think it's in
the 0.13 releases.

You can clear the list of libgrades with `--no-libgrade'.

Hmm, I didn't know that.  I think we should change the behaviour so
that the files aren't removed if `--use-grade-subdirs' is set.
